Sure, she sings off key and can’t carry a tune to save her life. And she messes up the lyrics and repeats the same wrong words over and over again, but she’s three and has absolutely zero sense of embarrassment or self-consciousness, so it’s cute, isn’t it? Maybe not for everyone. I guess what I view as adorable and hilarious as her mom is just annoying from the older brother’s perspective.
Take her rendition of her favorite song from Sunday School for instance. Instead of “OUR God is an awesome God” she sings:
“OR God is an awesome God
He rays from heaven above
with wind on power and love
“Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in my eye”
I fear for her future husband if she already sings of diamonds in her eyes at age 3.
How about her spin on Row Your Boat, which has her channeling her inner Paula Dean:
Gently down a seam
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
I have a few seasonal favorites from her repertoire of Christmas songs, too.
She tries to get Frosty to kick the habit:
“With a corked-up pipe and a button nose and two ice cubes out of coal.”
And sings the echoing verses of Rudolph like Mike Meyers doing Goldmember:
“You’ll go down in history (Like Norge Rashingshon!)”
As the resident music lover in our family, I keep watching and listening to all three of my kids in the hopes that one will inherit the music gene. Despite her current level of, um, talent(?), I still think she may be my best bet.
What are your favorite kid lyrics? I’d love to read them in the comments. Please share the laughs!
